The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best researchers in the
arena of Economics and Finance is based on data
combined from various data sources including OpenAlex and
CrossRef. The bibliometric data for estimating the citation-based metrics were
collected on 21-12-2022. Position in the ranking is based on a
researcher’s D-index (Discipline H-index), which
only includes publications and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The scope of our Economics and Finance research
Our best scientists ranking is a reliable lineup of leading scientists from the discipline of Economics and Finance, based on a thorough study of 166,880 researchers discovered from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the field of Economics and Finance, over 8163 scientists were examined.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Economics and Finance
The D-index threshold for accepting a researcher to be evaluated is set to 30 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Economics and Finance. The acceptance criteria for researchers to be considered into the ranking of top researchers are based on the D-index, ratio of the contributions made within the selected area in addition to the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for listing leading scholars is set as an increment of 10 depending on the total number of scientists assessed for each discipline whilst ensuring that the top 1% of best scholars are added into the ranking. We expect a proximity of 30% or less between a researcher’s general H-index and their D-index.
Extra verification methods
As our main mission is to guarantee that only actual scientists are mentioned in the ranking we believe that metrics are never meant to be a complete tool to quantify the output of scientists. This is why we manually verify each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a broad range of trustworthy sources. While it’s not a element impacting a scientist’s position in the ranking, the quantity of documents published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a credible secondary implication of their contribution to research in a given area of science. Position in the ranking is determined by each researcher’s D-index with the help of metrics gathered from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-known bibliometric databases of this kind open to the research community. A comprehensive explanation of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to motivate scholars, entrepreneurs and decision-makers around the world to explore where top experts are heading and to provide a way for the whole research community to discover who the leading experts in specific fields of research, in various countries, or even within research institutions are.
